Since our inception in 2004, Gateway Pet Guardians has been changing lives of the animals we save and the people we assist. Our mission to end homelessness for animals in the Metro East St. Louis area cannot be achieved without working hand in hand with the community. Each year, we can see the decline of stray and wandering animals in the region. This is due to increased outreach efforts and the relationships we have built. Free spay and neuter services, emergency vetting, containment resources and simply a phone number of someone to call if they have questions is providing pet owners the resources they need to care for the four-legged family members they love so deeply.
